I'm thinking of getting a set of carbon tubulars. All this nonsense about drag and dimples and rotational mass has deluded me into thinking I might be faster. Therefore, I ask you to humour me and not tell me crap like I won't be faster - I already know this. Consider this purely an academic discussion.
Does anyone know the added benefit of a rear aero wheel? Given the fact that the wheel is behind the frame and riders legs, is there really any noticeable difference? The reason I ask is because it is well within my budget to get a nice front and keep my Open Pro and Powertap rear. Sure, the thing will be ugly as hell, but I could care less. I don't really feel like getting a set just so it looks complete is worth it if the added benefit is like 10% of just the front wheel. Plus, I could always get the rear later.
